So we have traversed the halfway point of this review series and have also traversed halfway across the world for our next film of No-English Moviember. I hope that you enjoy this review of the Japanese drama film Okuribito (English: Departures).
Before watching Jagten (English: The Hunt), I had very limited knowledge of what the film’s plot was. Aside from a brief description from IMDb saying it was a drama where a man’s life is turned upside-down by one lie, I was left in complete ignorance as to what was about to occur.
Preferably, I’d like you all to be in this state of unknowing when, and if, you watch the film but since I’m reviewing it I might as well give you a review which, to the best of my abilities, conveys the spectacle which I was about to witness.
Hello to all my fellow Chroniclers out there. I just decided to pop by and let you all know about something that is coming up for The Chronic Chronicler which I hope you will all be looking forward to.
Well I never intended for these DreamWorks reviews to be a biweekly thing, but that’s how it’s somehow turned out. I was about to break this cycle and put up my review of Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron today, but something prevented me and, if you read the title, I think you can guess what it was.
It’s the first time I’ve reviewed a film that is still being shown in the cinema at time of reviewing since About Time and what a film to bring me back from reviewing films from years gone by. I’m a bit of a Studio Ghibli fan and when I heard that Hayao Miyazaki’s possibly final film The Wind Rises was screening near me I knew what this Wednesday’s review was going to be.
